ActionScript 3.0 :: Modifying Kirupa's Xml Photo Slideshow?

Jul 17, 2009

I'm trying to modify Kirupa's xml photo slideshow by adding an extra text field, which if I understand correctly gives each element 3 children (image+text1+text2) instead of 2 (image+text). Even though I've added the third child correctly in the xml, I can't seem to get it to work at all. Here is what I did with the actionscript:

delay = 10000;
function loadXML(loaded) {
if (loaded) {


I've highlighted the parts I've added to the code provided by kirupa's tutorial. sub_text is the instance name I give to the new text field in Flash.

ActionScript 2.0 :: Kirupa Slideshow - How To Center The Image

Jun 10, 2011

I am working on a flash project right now with the help of the tutorials found on this website and decided to use and modify this existing slideshow by Kirupa.


What I did was, I resized it according to my projects demands, which is 1024x650 [URL]Everything is working perfectly except for one drawback.

Some of my images are sized 440x650. Normally, when I link that to the XML file provided, it is aligned by default to the left. My current solution was to resize the entire file into 1024x650 creating the illusion that the image is at the center because I included the seamless background on the saved jpeg.My question is this, is there any way I can center the 440x650 image to be displayed in the slideshow?

Kirupa's original code is this one:

Nov 28, 2006

I have been trying to make four buttons on the bottom of the kirupa xml slideshow. I am trying to write a function that states on release advance to slide #? I was trying to use a similar function to:

image1.onRelease = function() {
p=1 ? (p--, loadPic(p), slide=0) : null;
stop_btn._visible = 0;


There are four images that are dynamically linked. The function is not recognizing that the image is p=1. Do I need to do something like total-3 or something.

modify this tutorial ([URL]) so that it does this: one of the external swf's has a button in it that loads another external swf in a different area of the stage, so now there would be 2 external swf's displayed on stage. Then, when one of the main buttons is clicked, the exit animation of the 2nd swf is played, then the exit animation of the 1st swf is played, then the new external swf is loaded in the same spot that the 1st one was.

ActionScript 2.0 :: Extending Kirupa's XML Menu?

May 30, 2007

Alright, I've been tasked to build a menu system similar to the one on 2Advanced V5. I know, I know, don't mess with copying peoples' stuff, but my arm's being twisted to do so, by the management. I've started with Kirupa's XML menu, modified the XML to my liking, and have added some sliding code in there. I'm having a hard time with1. Getting the sliding code to interact with the submenus.2. I've got no idea how to adjust the submenus so they don't scroll too fast or too slow.EDIT: All I need is for each submenu to be scrollable, and not scroll too fast, based on how many buttons are in there. XML source can be set to the XML example in Kirupa's tutorials.The FLA is attached, and here's the Actionscript:

// generates a list of menu items (effectively one menu)
// given the inputted parameters. This makes the main menu

ActionScript 2.0 :: Using Preloader With Percentage From The Kirupa Tut?

Using this preloader w/percentage from the kirupa tut.

bytes_loaded = Math.round(this.getBytesLoaded());
bytes_total = Math.round(this.getBytesTotal());
getPercent = bytes_loaded/bytes_total;
this.loadBar._width = getPercent*100;


I'm having trouble calculating the getBytesTotal method to return less that the total. In other words, I'd like to start the movie before it has fully loaded. Lets say, 75% loaded then gotoAndPlay.

ActionScript 2.0 :: Kirupa'a Adding Thumbnails?

Jul 6, 2008

i have been able to customize this tutorial for my needs but i am still having one problem with the thumbnails. Unlike in the tutorial i have thumbnail that are two different sizes. most of them are 100 pixals wide but some are 75 and when they are different sizes like that it screws it up...they overlap or leave big gaps between thumbs.

below you can find the code i am using. the line of code that places the thumbs in there position is

target_mc._x = hit_left._x+(target_mc._width+5)*k;

i was able to stop the thumbs from over laping by replacing target_mc._width with 100 but that doesnt fix the big gaps between the images that are 75 wide.

function loadXML(loaded) {
if (loaded) {
xmlNode = this.firstChild;
image = [];
